Jazz Fest: Part Two

by Brock Peters - Monday, Jun 15, 2015 at 6:50pm

It was a busy weekend in Winnipeg, and I hope that you managed to find some time to enjoy the Winnipeg International Jazz Festival. If not, never fear! Every day this week you can catch a free lunch-hour show at The Cube in Old Market Square!

Here are five more fantastic local acts that you can see at this year's festival - and if you miss them, they all have albums available as well.

Nadia Douglas - Friday June 19, 7:00 pm, The Cube Lounge
She infuses the fiery stylings of such artists as Etta James and Sarah Vaughan to create a dynamic musical treat of upbeat jazz and American standards.

I met Nadia when she was dropping off her CDs at the store, and she's a kind, dynamic person, in addition to being very talented!

Curtis Nowosad Quintet - Friday June 19, 10:00 pm, Maw's Beer Hall
A native of Winnipeg, Curtis is recognized as one of the faces of the new generation of Canadian jazz. He has performed with top musicians like Stefon Harris, Bobby Sanabria’s MSM Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra and Kenny Barron, to name a few.

Grace Hrabi - Friday June 19, 7:30 pm, Cinematheque
Grace Hrabi’s sweet and emotional stories have been shaped by the people who have come into her life and what is left behind when they go. Her rich and dulcet voice will sing a song that your ears will hear and your heart will understand.

Mike Swickis Trio - Friday June 19, 10:30 pm, Winnipeg Free Press Cafe
Mike Swickis is a Winnipeg-based guitarist and composer and has lead his own trio for over a decade. Performing compositions that draw from both jazz and contemporary styles like rock, funk and country, Mike blurs the categorical boundaries in favour of a personal sound.

Martha Brooks & Jeff Presslaff - Friday June 19, 8:00 pm, Winnipeg Free Press Cafe
Martha Brooks, an award-winning singer and novelist, most recently appeared in concert with the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra in “All My Tomorrows: The Music of Sammy Cahn” — a concept developed with her music collaborator, Jeff Presslaff. Their CD, All My Tomorrows, was recorded live at the 2013 TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival.

by Brock Peters - Friday, Jun 12, 2015 at 11:06am

The Winnipeg International Jazz Festival kicked off yesterday, with an exciting roster of stars like Esperanza Spalding, Buddy Guy, and Dave Holland. But if you're anything like me, what's most exciting is watching local musicians - fellow Winnipeggers - as they display some of the enormous musical talent our city has to offer.

Here are a some of the local artists you can catch in the coming week - there are so many, we'll be featuring them in three parts! All of them have a significant connection to Winnipeg, and all of them have albums available for sale in our store!

Mira Black's Mrs. Jones - Sunday June 14, 4:00 pm, Old Market Square
Three sassy soul singers for whom nothing is taboo... while they rise to the discipline of jazz, the heart of R&B, the sex of funk and a whole lotta of fun on any stage.

Doug Edmond - Tuesday June 16, 8:00 pm, Winnipeg Free Press Cafe
Singer, songwriter, pianist and flutist, Doug Edmond plays jazz and roots music. Doug is often found “…betwixt a number of genres and influences."

Jimmy Greene Quartet - Thursday June 18, 7:30 & 10:00 pm, Maw's Beer Hall

Monika Wall - Thursday June 18, 8:00 pm, Winnipeg Free Press Cafe
By connecting the sounds of many cultures, Monika Wall has created her own jazz-based vintage cabaret music. Classically trained and jazz-inspired, she will sing songs that are grounded in roots and spirituals at this year’s TD International Winnipeg Jazz Festival.

Keith Price Trio - Thursday June 18, 10:30 pm, Winnipeg Free Press Cafe
Price is known for his simple and expressive approach to improvisation and his warm, spacey guitar tones. His original material is melodic and introspective, connecting with ideas and feelings that are of a spiritual nature.
